A sweet blackberry aroma coupled with a smooth honey sweet taste and spicy blackberry notes.
A most unique tea which is indigenous to Taiwan and still grows wild in certain areas. It is rarely sold as the plant loses it's distinct characteristics when cultivated and so the only tea production is from the surviving wild growing bushes.
Please note, the new 2017 harvest doesn't quite match up to the quality of last year's 2016 harvest.
